I can't stop thinking about it. And every time I think about it, I smile. My heart skips a couple beats. I'm insanely happy.
Lexington has a new hardware store.
(What did you think I meant???)
Yep, a brand-spankin-new hardware store in the big building where the Chevy dealership used to be, so I'm doubly happy. We now have a decent place to buy tools and sandpaper and plumbing supplies and electrical stuff, and now folks see a nice locally-owned business instead of a vacant building when they come to town from the south. And to top it all off, they sell Valspar paint, which saves me a 45-minute trip to the closest big-box store and lets me support small business. (Although I will kinda miss the hot guy in plumbing at the Lowe's in Warrensburg.) I'll need Valspar paint when I finally decide to tackle the peeling paint on the east side of my house. That's a September/October project.
Now if I could just find someone to help me get my cast-iron clawfoot tub out of the hardware store parking lot, I'd be really, really happy...
